Colonial Africa - The Africa House

Unread postby Bushbaby » Tue Mar 22, 2005 10:10 pm

Heres a new one, if you love stories of the first settlers in darkest Africa who believed the sun never set on the Bristish Empire, then this one is for you.

The Africa House - Christina Lamb

About a man with a vision, a little misguided, but all he really wanted was to have a haven in Africa away from all that Europe stood for.

The book is written from diary extracts and letters and papers belonging to the family. Full of history and insights of Africa.

Not all who wander are lost.
J.R.R. Tolkien
